After reading the previous reviews we were a bit concerned about going here. However, the other people must have gone to a different place!!!! We got a welcome drink on arrival, the staff took our bags to our rooms, we were quickly booked in and what a lovely hotel and extremely friendly and very pleasant staff. They could all speak a variety of languages (which put us to shame, we are English) the staff couldn't do enough for us and were always smiling and helpfull. We got to our room and it was spotlessly clean and a very good size with 2 double beds pushed together which gave us loads of room and the beds were extremely comfortable, which was a concern because both my husband and myself suffer from bad backs sometimes but we were fine on these beds. The food was plentiful and of good quality and a great variety. You were never stuck for something different, There was an excellent choice at all meal times. The salads were absolutely lovely as was everything else and you could see the Chefs cooking the food in front of you, which I always like. The entertainment was plentiful, but if you didn't want to join in (which we didn't) you weren't forced, you were left alone. However, the games were good to watch. The shows in the evening were brill and the entertainment staff absolutely bounding with energy I don't know how they did it.
We were there between 1st and 15th November and we had a spell of rain every day, but it was still hot and each room had an umbrella provided for use of guests. Our room was cleaned every day and beds made and our mini bar was constantly re-stocked. I would most definitely recommend this hotel and wouldnot hesitate in going back. Everywhere around the complex was spotless clean and the pools were lovely.
Excellent stay thanks to all the lovely staff
